This group showcases some of the best cheeses made in the U.S.; cheeses that make us proud and have redefined the term "American Cheese". Each of these has won the title of "Best in Show" at the American Cheese Society’s annual conference. This is an immense honor: the title is given only one cheese each year which is deemed better than all the others. Each year there are thousands of entries, so we know these are truly the creme de la creme.
Our American Champions Collection contains the following:
Harbison 5 oz. -a soft-ripened disc of pudgy, creamy and complex goodness. Salty and satisfying with notes of mushrooms and green vegetables.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve 8 oz. - Made in Wisconsin on a farm dedicated to raw milk, traditional methods, and rotational grazing, this cheese is made with care and it shows. Inspired by Alpine cheeses like Gruyere, it’s firm, pliable and incredibly complex. Flavors of grass, cream, and onions delight the palate, with a brothy savoriness and a long finish. It's a must-try.
Cabot Clothbound Cheddar 8 oz. - A genius collaboration between Cabot Creamery and the Cellars at Jasper Hill. This British-inspired cheddar is aged in cloth which allows the cheese to lose some water-weight, therefore intensifying the flavor. Dynamic and delicious.
Red Hawk 8 oz. - Divinely buttery, this triple-cream stinker is like eating a creamy steak. Dense, rich, salty: something akin to heaven.
